Established in 2003, XVA Gallery is one of the leading galleries in the Middle East that specializes in contemporary art from the Arab world and Iran. Its rigorous exhibition program includes works by emerging, mid-career and established artists who are responding to their local environments in thoughtful and provocative ways.
